NCSBN to Implement New NCLEX-RN Test Plan and Passing Standard This Year

The National Council of State Boards of Nursing, Inc. (NCSBN) announced that effective April 1, 2010, the NCLEX-RN examination will follow a new test plan. Furthermore, in conjuction with this new development, the said licensure examination will have a raised passing standard.

The decision of the NCSBN Board of Directors to raise the passing standard of the NCLEX-RN examination from the current standard of -0.21 logits to -0.16 logits came after the findings of a nine-person panel of experts assembled to perform a standard-setting procedure. Results of surveys conducted to nursing professionals also supported the need to raise the passing standard of the NLCEX-RN examination in response to the dynamic changes in health care delivery and nursing practice in the United States.

The NCSBN evaluates the passing standard and the NCLEX-RN examination test plan following a three-year cycle to ensure that entry-level nurses who pass the NCLEX-RN examination possess the necessary knowledge, skills, and abilities required to render safe and effective client care. The current NCLEX-RN examination passing standard and test plan was implemented in 2007.

The National Council of State Boards of Nursing, Inc. (NCSBN) is a non-profit organization. Its members include the boards of nursing in the 50 states and other U.S. territories.
